Creamy Tomato Soup at The Brick has been named one of Georgia’s “100 Plates Locals Love”

ATLANTA, May 25, 2016— The Brick has been awarded the 2016/2017 “100 Plates Locals Love” distinction by GeorgiaDepartment of Economic Development’s Tourism division (GDEcD). Georgia Tourism’s second annual list of “100 Plates Locals Love” is featured in the state’s culinary guide, Georgia Eats. “Georgia’s cities, towns and backroads are filled with authentic restaurants and culinary specialties that visitors love to experience when they travel,” said Kevin Langston, deputy commissioner for tourism at the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “The list of ‘100 Plates Locals Love’ is our way of providing visitors and locals with suggestions, the same way we would recommend restaurants to our family and friends.”   The Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Tourism Division highlights the state’s culinary greatness in the official guide, Georgia Eats. Following the success of the culinary guide in 2015, the Tourism Division decided to recreate this informative and inspiring guide that entices visitors to sample the state’s world-class cuisine. As a part of the “100 Plates Locals Love” designation, each restaurant is featured in the Georgia Eats culinary guide, which is distributed via the 12 Visitor Information Centers statewide; on the state’s consumer tourism website; and on Explore Georgia’s social media channels. “Doing our best since 1993!” Frank Pendergast may not know a whole lot about fancy book learning or keep with the Kardishihooligans, but he does know food and hospitality.  It is The Brick's constant goal to keep their customers bellies full and their hearts happy by providing the best food possible, as well as the most vibrant and amiable staff around.  The Brick has been a Milledgeville staple serving up Brick Oven Pizza, Pasta, Calzones, Salads, Sandwiches, Wings, Nachos and More!  And the tomato soup is always a crowd pleaser. It's creaminess and chunks of tomatoes makes it stand out from the crowd. Just one of our favorite downtown Milledgeville establishments.  Georgia’s culinary initiative focuses on showcasing the state’s authentic experiences that revolve around food. The state launched a new culinary landing page that features our culinary blogger, the Georgia Flavors videos, flavor tours and more. The second-annual Georgia Restaurant Week will take place July 18-24, 2016 at participating restaurants throughout Georgia. The event will showcase Georgia’s restaurants to consumers and attract new visitors by showcasing the state’s many culinary tourism assets. During this week-long event, patrons, both local and from out of state, will be able to explore the numerous dining options throughout Georgia for a special price and sample locally grown products that are available in Georgia’s restaurants. The dishes were selected from nearly 600 nominations that were submitted on in November 2015 and evaluated by a panel of judges, who selected the final list of “100 Plates Locals Love.” …
